  • Van Heusen and ARROW are mostly known for their mid-priced dress shirts but have some other products as well.
  • Warner's and Olga are brands of intimate apparel.
  • Speedo is a brand of athletic swimwear.
Tommy Hilifiger women's clothes suck. Izod doesn't have women's clothing. Van Heusen doesn't seem to have women's clothes and they one store went out of business locally for me. Never seen Arrow. Warners and Olga have really boring intimates and don't make my bra size. Speedo is only for athletic swimming not lounging.

So basically most of these brands are pretty irrelevant for me.

Yep. Pretty much this. And Calvin Klein isn't really cut for curvy women (even their plus size stuff)

I recently discovered a Warner's bra style that I really like and fits well, but I wouldn't say it's my favorite of anything. All the other choices are pretty meh.

Ditto.

I don't give a cr@p about brands. I buy whatever is inexpensive at Goodwill.

Although now that I think about it, I like Keene shoes from Cabelas. Not for the brand, but because I have wide feet, and they make wide shoes that are also durable and rugged.

Arrow is probably lesser known than the other brands, and is mainly sold at Sears and Kohl's. It is named after The Arrow Collar Man, an ad campaign featuring male models that ran from 1905 to 1931. Hardly anyone is old enough to remember that campaign.

Well, that was interesting. I didn't know of the connection between the brands. Most of them I know and have disdain for. The one I like is, predictably, Calvin Klein. The quality is okay, the pricing is reasonable, its shirts come in moderately exotic colors, and CK might as well hire me to model those shirts, since they fit perfectly, which no other brand I've tried regularly does.
